text: In the afternoon I finally finished the house list of the Thepong and now have it complete for Wakching. One woman who is now married with a Khoknokhu man has a son from her first husband of the Oukheang Khoknokhu who lives in the Thepong and has entered this morung as well (house 67). Today Shankok bought a rice granary, which is to be demolished, for 8 rupees. He wants to incorporate the carved doors in particular in one of his bungalows.
